Challenge

Approximately 80% of the Ofafa Valley women and girls live below the poverty line. Households headed by rural women have an income of 42% of their urban female counterparts and 56% of their rural male-headed household counterparts. (Stats SA) With many rural "able-bodies" having to function as migrant workers, elderly women are expected to single-handedly manage domestic demands. The girl-child bears the additional burdens of domestic duties, risk of teenage pregnancy and early school exit

Solution

Prioritise gender justice as a core value of Woza Moya. Provide In-school, After-school, Girl-camps and Girl-child support groups as mechanisms to empower young girls. Promote an awareness among women of their rights, strengths and inherent capacities to own their personal and familial well-being. Provide in-home women's health support. Assist in the establishment of women-led Self-Help Groups towards emancipation.

Long-Term Impact

Outcomes: Annually, 200 girls and 800 women have improved strengths as per the Standardised Strengths & Difficulty Questionnaire (SDQ). Impact: By 2023, 75% of the woman and girl participants in the Woza Moya Gender Justice Programme are able to independently sustain a continued improvement in their situational wellbeing
